I've been waiting for this one. The pour was brilliant, crystal clear in the glass with an appropriate but not long lasting head.
The nose was typical of an IPA, but it was not overwhelming. There was also a nice floral nose to this that had to come from hops other than our normal American West Coast and East Coast Cascade and Centennial.
The bitterness was present with the first taste with a very crisp and satisfying total mouthful.
This is not an over hoppy beer, nor a simple beer. Very enjoyable, one that someone starting out with craft beers should enjoy.

Bottle from Gary's
Pours a slightly hazy deep straw color with a decent sized creamy bubbly white head that slowly dissipates. Aromas of orange, earth. pine, and resin with a solid light sweet sugary maltiness to back it up. The flavor is quite sweet like the aroma suggested with sweet sugar covered oranges and apricots. The earthy pine is less prevalent in the flavor as is the bitterness. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation. Its got some nice flavors and I'm guessing most of the fruit flavors might be hop derived. Needs more attenuation and more bitterness.

This reveiw is based on a draft enjoyed on my birthday at Max's in Baltimore. It has an average appearance: light amber body crowned by a thin head. It offers a caramel nose and a mildy sweet molasses bite with a quick hoppy finish at the end.
Nice balance with moderate carbonation - and suprisingly smooth for a beer of this caliber. Sometime next year I gotta get up to Brooklyn and visit this place, one of America's finest craft breweries. Nuff said. Forgeddaboutit!
